Dave (far left) who was living here at Giffard House last year has now completed his fourth year of formation, (one in Valladolid and three in Rome) and has been instituted as an Acolyte at a Mass in the Chapel at Palazzola today. Palazzola, which is in the Alban Hills south of Rome, is the summer house of the Venerable English College. All the students of the college spend the last couple of weeks of term there at the end of the academic year. He was instituted by Archbishop Paul Gallagher, the Secretary for Relations with States at the Vatican. Archbishop Paul was himself a student at the Venerable English College at the same time as your parish priest!
Dave will be coming back to England over the summer and will be doing his pastoral placement in Malvern. Please remember him in your prayers.
Toby Duckworth will be ordained deacon in the same chapel next Sunday. We hope to have a link on this website so that you can watch the Mass from home.
Below is the certificate that Dave received after the Mass.
